Stayed here with my teen daughter on our way to UVic. Beautiful heritage home, that is well kept. Room had a large Jacuzzi that we both would have like to try but didn't get the chance. Everything was very clean, staff friendly and breakfast delicious Nothing
We loved the classic oldness of the place...the architecture was amazing! The staff was friendly and informative for places to go. We were there to celebrate our 28th anniversary and they upgraded us at no extra cost. The place had a musty smell to it...we got used to it. When booking, we put in diet restrictions which they had a challenge adhering to. (no seafood or pork products)
quite beautiful scenery, kind, clean room, nice kitchen.
It was situated in the ideal location for us. I love old world charm and this 100 year old building in a lovely residential neighborhood certainly retained that. One cannot ask for more when it is situated next door to a castle ! Very quiet and peaceful The bathroom did not have hand soap, tissues or shampoo. I had expected those amenities as standard fare.
The living room and breakfast area were beautiful and new looking. The owner kindly compromised when there were big problems to solve. And the neighborhood was lovely. The rooms were terrible. They were dirty, stained carpet, cramped; no clock, tissues, reading lamp, or simple amenities. Oneshower caddy was rusty, & the bathroom door wouldn't close. Holes in wall in hall w/light hanging by a wire, paint fumes.
The character and the delicious breakfast. The easy check-in and check-out system. missing shelves in the shower for toiletries.
The Prior Castle Inn was a wonderful spot, rich in history and very unique. It really went beyond me expectation of a hotel, in fact it didn't feel like one at all. Our host was wonderful, so helpful and genuine It was a bit of a trek to downtown Victoria, but we knew that beforehand, so its not a complaint, merely something to consider as a future guest. Walking would would take approx 35 minutes, and a cab would cost around $10. The WIFI was also quite weak.
The building itself has been renovated but it needs a little more tlc on some detsils.
